Harry Houdini’s legacy has lived on long past his death. His name is still synonymous with escape artists and masterful magicians.

One of his most well known performances was escaping a straight jacket while hanging upside down high above the ground.

That happened 100 years ago! On the anniversary, Lee Terbosic reenacted it 90 feet above the crowd in Pittsburgh. It took him 4.5 years to master this Houdini trick. I can’t imagine being upside down that long, let alone high in the air and in a straight jacket!

Watch Lee in the video below to see how he did it!

Wow! You can compare that to Houdini’s escape 100 years earlier in the video below.

Houdini tricks still draw a crowd 100 years later! That was simply amazing!

Share this if you were impressed!
